SharePoint 2010 Migration Seminar

In my new role as Chief Technical Officer at StoneShare Inc., a Canadian SharePoint solutions firm, I am currently working on SharePoint 2010 migration options, and will be presenting a seminar on migration at several different events over the next month.

This topic will be focused on administrators and business users who want to understand migration paths and how best to prepare for a 2010 move.

I will do a live demo of an in-place SharePoint 2010 Upgrade - not for the faint of heart :) - and discuss the various options, useful tools, what sort of planning is required, and actual technical steps to get a great migration result.

I’ll be publishing my slides once the seminar is complete. Here’s an overview of the demonstration:
